Invaluable advice from experienced teachers for every stage of education. Here we talk about Sixth Form, when important decisions have to be made.

Frewen College – Hazel Lawrence, Head of Sixth Form 

At this stage our kids are young adults – not children. How can parents support them in a way that respects this? (And not get irritated!) Speak to them and listen to what they are saying, even if it sounds outlandish. Several of my students have suggested it’s easier to have these conversations when you are doing something else, like washing up, or preparing dinner, as this makes them feel less intense.
